29-12-2016 19:00 BST - Crvena Zvezda v CSKA Moscow - Euroleague Betting Tips
The hosts are well known for pulling off a few shocks in their time but their hopes of pulling off a major surprise this week have probably been diminished by what happened last week in the Euroleague. The Belgrade side holds a 6-8 record and they welcome reigning Euroleague champions CSKA Moscow, who hold a 12-2 record, on Thursday night. However, the fact that the Russian side lost week probably means that they’ll be even more fired up to get a win in this game.
While most of the focus on last week’s games fell on CSKA falling, there was a big win for Crvena as they defeated Real Madrid. That is something to be proud of and it is likely that the Belgrade side will have confidence coming into this game. They also have the second-best defence in the Euroleague, giving up an average of 75 points per game, and this is something that will be pushed to the limits on Thursday night. Scoring points has been slightly trickier for the hosts and they only have one player who is in double figures for the season so far. Marko Simonovic has offered an average of 12.6 points per game this season and he will be a vital player in this game. Then again, Ognen Kuzmic has provided an average of 8 rebounds per game this season, and he’ll have a big role to play.

CSKA Moscow need to bounce back in Euroleague
The Russians hold a 0-9 run against the Belgrade side over the years but the Moscow side has a few injuries to contend with. Nando De Colo has been absent for seven games and any team would miss the MVP of last season. However, the Russians still have the best offensive record in the league, coming in at average of 92 points per game, and they’ll be keen to utilise this as best as they can. Milos Teodosic is likely to be a key player, and he is currently ranked second with respect to scoring, with an average of 18.7 points per game. Other big players for the Moscow side include Corey Higgins with an average of 10.5 points per game and Aaron Jackson, who has provided an average of 9.5 points per game.
